Okay, so 6 months ago, I felt a moderately sized lump in the back of my neck (one inch and a half, maybe), I went to go see my doctor, but he said it was a little lymph node, nothing to worry about. (...
What are the survival percentage rates for a woman with stage three c breast cancer?
She has had a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation. She is currently taking the drug Femara. She is two years into the disease and has had no tumors but still has high tumor markers and uptake in the spine showing on pet-scans.So What do you think her survival rate is?
The 5-year survival rates for stage 3A and 3B are 67 & 54%. However, it sounds like she is a stage 4, which has a 5-year survival rate of 20%. You should know that it is not unusual for stage 4 breast cancer patients to survive 10 years or more. We are better able to manage this disease all the time.
